Chances at BU

Postby mj1922 » Wed Oct 11, 2017 9:05 pm

Hi everyone I have a 3.2 gpa and a 156 lsat and also am Native American/white. I was wondering my chances of getting accepted into the “BU-Bound” Binding Decision Program. Thanks!

Unless BU has changed since I applied and no longer offers $150k binding ED, you won't be getting it currently.

Retake. If you are a card-carrying Native American- get a 165+ and enjoy a t13 for free.

Theres an additional binding program that only offers need-based scholarships and not merit based scholarships

Don't do this. In law school, "need-based financial aid" or whatever basically means "we'll verify that you're a graduate student so you can take out $200k in loans". And applying ED pretty much takes you out of the running for merit-based scholarships, which are the kind that actually improve your financial situation.
